David Shepherd Art

David Shepherd CBE FRSA 1931 – 2017

David studied art under professional artist, Robin Goodwin, with early commissions for the RAF taking him to Aden in 1960, and on to Kenya. This trip changed his life. He was asked to paint his first wildlife subject and at the same time, he became a conservationist overnight when he witnessed 255 zebra dead around a waterhole poisoned by poachers.

For 60 years David dedicated his life to protecting some of the world’s most iconic and endangered animals. The foundation lives on in his memory – to read more about David Shepherd click here.

Buffalo in the African Bush

Painted in 2003
Canvas Only: 40cms x 25cms
With Frame: 55cms x 40cms

“Buffalo in the Bush” was created as a private commission in 2003. The owner wanted a typical traditional African wildlife scene allowing David to do what he loved best – surrounding wildlife with landscape scenery. David always considered himself as a landscape artist but realised that there was more of a demand for wildlife images – hence why he initially popped them into his stunning landscapes! From there he went on to develop his reputation as a wildlife artist.

Sketch of Winter of 43 – Somewhere in England

Working Canvas

Painted in 1978
Canvas Only: 86cm x 51cms

David could not part with the finished original of this painting since it meant a great deal to him. David made many friends over this time and continued to be indebted to the RAF which in essence helped to launch his artistic career and his determination to help save endangered wildlife.
This working canvas along with 850 limited prints from the finished original raised a large amount of money for the RAF Benevolent Fund. Just over 175 prints were counter signed by Dr Barnes Wallace ( inventor of the bouncing bomb) and Marshal of the Royal Airforce, Sir Arthur “Bomber” Harris, Commander in Chief Bomber Command, 1942 – 1945.
The current owner of this “working canvas” is an ex BOAC pilot who spent some time in Kenya and came across some of David’s early paintings. John now wishes to help raise funds for the Foundation by selling this painting. There is more to tell!.

Granny's Kitchen

Framed: 115cms x 85cms including the frame

David said that he always found inspiration in painting scenes of the Victorian period – glistening pots and pans, an old range, and the wealth of colour to be found in the rich greens of cabbage and asparagus, the orange of carrots, and all the paraphernalia of Mrs Beaton heaped upon an old pine table. This painting was also inspired by the TV series 'Upstairs, Downstairs'. David actually engaged a TV set designer to install a complete Victorian kitchen in his garage – of which only a tiny portion is in the painting! The little girl is David and Avril’s eldest grandchild who is now 32 years old!

The Stag of Rannoch Moor

Painted in 2001
Canvas Only: 84cm x 54cm
With Frame: 108cm x 78cm

One of David’s favourite places was the Scottish Highlands. He was approached to paint a stag on Rannoch Moor - probably one of the most iconic of Scottish subjects and one very close to David’s heart. He delighted in painting this rare subject, with the opportunity to capture the brooding atmosphere of this dramatic Glen, where rolling mists suddenly give way to fleeting glimpses of these majestic beasts. It is a brilliant evocative painting.

Cottage Companions

Canvas only: 71cms x 60cms
To include Frame: 89cms x 77cms

As quoted by David: Barbara posed for this picture with Muffin our bearded colie. While Barbara was trying to get on with the spinning, Muffin was trying to persuade her that going for a walk would be far more fun. The fireplace was in our home at the time – an Elizabethan farmhouse dating from 1560. The original hooks in the inglenook fireplace were still in the brick wall to hold the curtain back.

Prior to selling, this original will be renovated.

Stonegate of York Minster

Painted in early 1960s

Canvas Only: 41cm x 51cm
With Frame: 56cm x 64cm

Stonegate of York Minster" was painted in the 1960s. In the early part of David's career, he used to paint a large number of pictures depicting street scenes from 1890s which were used as Christmas cards and of course helped launch his career. So indeed David really enjoyed painting street scenes setting up his easel, this time setting up in York Minster and chatting to the passing public initially alongside his mentor and teacher Sir Robin Goodwin. The current owner inherited this painting from his father who met him in when David used to sell his paintings off the railings in Green Park, London in early 1960. It has remained with the same family and t has been treasured over the years.
